I BIKE SONOMA COUNTY CENTURY
JUNE 22
ND RIDE PRESENTED BY WHOLE FOODS MARKET 

by Sandra Lupien, Outreach Director, Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition

Get ready for the bike ride you’ll remember! The first-ever I Bike Sonoma County Century, presented by Whole Foods Market, is set for June 22, 2013, and it’s the ride event you won’t want to miss this year. 

Benefitting Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, the I Bike Sonoma County Century offers something for everyone, so gather your friends and family, choose from four beautiful routes, and prepare to experience awesome riding and fabulous food in gorgeous Sonoma County! 

By riding the I Bike Sonoma County Century, you help Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition (SCBC) make Sonoma County the best place to ride a bike. Since 2001, SCBC has promoted bicycling for transportation and recreation; its work helps make Sonoma County a safer, more accessible place for everyone – of any age or experience level – to enjoy the health benefits and fun of riding a bike. 

How it works: At registration, you can choose to pay a flat fee and just ride. Or, you can become a Fundraiser Super Hero: these riders pay a dramatically reduced fee and agree to raise a minimum amount of $250 in support of Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition. 

In addition to a great ride for a great cause, all registered riders receive a goodie bag, and get to enjoy rest stops at Whole Foods Market locations throughout Sonoma County, and a post-ride festival and lunch at Whole Foods Market Coddingtown. 

 

Regular, early-bird registration begins at www.bikesonoma.org/century at 12:00 a.m. on February 11th

Check out the routes (we are still tweaking these, but this will give you a solid idea of what to expect): 

Century (103 miles) 

Metric Century (66 miles) 

35-mile Route 

Fun Family-Friendly Route 

The I Bike Sonoma County Century is presented by Whole Foods Market, produced by Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, and sponsored by J & D Services, Codding Enterprises, Coddingtown Mall, Elevengear, GHD, Kaiser Permanente, REI, ShiKai, and Sutter Health.
